When it comes to online gaming, there's no denying that the Xbox One is king. The top-notch performance of Xbox Live and the strong library of online-multiplayer games is why so many people continue to buy an Xbox One to this day. However, not everyone wants to play online. For those who prefer hooking up a second controller over a WiFi router, the Xbox One is there for you. With the help of your votes, let's rank the best local co-op games on Xbox One right now. 

While first-person shooters like Halo and Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 are best known for their chaotic multiplayer, they also support local co-op for onlookers who want to join in on the fun. For those who prefer a third-person perspective, Gears of War offers exhilarating gunplay through its team-based story campaign and various multiplayer modes. Shoot 'em up lovers will get a real kick out of Cuphead, a brutal-yet-addicting 2D side-scroller that looks like a cartoon from the 1930s. For younger players, Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2 and Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 offers simple, oddball fun that anyone can love. 

The ranked list below features all the best local co-op Xbox One games that are hot right now - don't forget to vote up your favorites and even add games to the list if they're not already here!
